Re: My drawings

Different strokes for different folks I guess, I do understand it though, but you don't tell me it doesn't give you satisfaction when you finish a painting of that quality. Hell I couldn't draw something a quarter that good if my life depended on it.

@Northero  cool

Re: My drawings

yeah, and T_W_D, you say you did all that with a round brush i photoshop?
a) how long did it take you?
b) Did you have a point of reference (a picture) or was it from your head

Re: My drawings

Actually, no. So far I wasn't fully satisfied with any of my pics.

you say you did all that with a round brush i photoshop?

Yes.

how long did it take you?

Have no idea. I can't just sit and draw, I distract constantly on movies, interweb, phone calls, sudden guests, chatting with roommates and the like. All in all, it's about 6 or 7 hours (and trying to understand what exactly to draw takes the most of it).

Did you have a point of reference (a picture) or was it from your head

What do you take me for? I don't do rip offs.

Re: My drawings

Many artists use photos and models for references.  Although I do think it's cooler to produce something without looking at a reference, even great artists will acknowledge the need for models when trying to paint humans in the highest detail.


byproducts are fine, but where's the beef?

Re: My drawings

I prefer not to cheat. I sometimes use references, but only to understand, how the object should look like, and I never make these sketches the actual drawings.

Re: My drawings

I don't mind drawing things like vehicles, weapons and such, because they have no rules or boundries of which you have to follow, things like people and animals i find VERY difficult because they all have set proportions, which I've never been able to truely duplicate, espcially facial features, nose, mouth head shape etc...

Wrong. Everything has, especially complicated things like vehicles and weapons. To draw a good gun, even a non-existant one, you must know the details a general gun consists of. Actually, that's a rule of drawing everything else. To know what details make an object, their function and their general shape.

Re: My drawings

still, ALL humans beings need to follow exact constraints, for a weapon or vehicle, they may need certain elements, but I get to make a lot of those up myself, or change them as I please. I do know that they need to have details, but those can be twisted big_smile
If you draw a nose for example a bit off, it looks terrible, if I draw a trigger a little off, people have never seen anything like that drawn before so they can't pick it out smile

Re: My drawings

Of course. The most difficult things to draw are those you see every day. It's in our genes to recognise faces. That's why uglyness repels.
